Fellows of the American Academy of Microbiology (AAM), an honorific leadership group within the American Society for Microbiology (ASM), are elected annually through a highly selective, peer-review process, based on their records of scientific achievement and original contributions that have advanced microbiology. Founded in 1899, the ASM is one of the largest life science societies in the world with over 30,000 members across the globe.
